Adams Idea CMB Irons hide two little secrets
Adams’ latest irons for better players, the Idea CMB, are now hitting pro shop shelves. Forged from 1025 carbon steel and featuring a Nickel chrome finish, the CMBs are designed to provide the feel and feedback that pros and low-handicap amateurs want, while still offering a touch of forgiveness on mis-hits.
In the playing position, the toplines of the CMBs are thin and there is minimal offset, which should allow accomplished golfers to shape shots in either direction with ease.
But it's what you can't see -- a pair of tungsten weights positioned low in the toe area of each club -- that makes the CMB more forgiving. The weights, which are hidden under a piece of steel that is plasma-welded to the head, help to pull the sweet spot toward the center of the hitting area. Combined with a subtle cavity back design, this should make the CMB irons less punishing on off-center hits.
In another nod to the preferences of better players, Adams has also added multiple bevels to the sole of the CMB irons to help them enter and exit the turf more easily.
The standard eight-club set of Idea CMB irons (4-GW) will retail for about $1099 with KBS C-Taper steel shafts and $1,199 with Matrix Ozik Program 8.1 graphite shafts. Several custom shaft options are available, but sorry lefties, the CMBs are currently being made for right-handed players only.
